The Claims Management Tribunal is part of the General Regulatory Chamber of HM Courts and Tribunals Service. A claims management firm may be able to appeal against a decision by the regulator if it:
• Refuses an application for authorisation
• Revokes a company’s authorisation
• Adds conditions to a company’s authorisation
• Issues a fine against the firm
A firm has 28 days from the date of the regulator’s decision to lodge an appeal. Appeals made outside of this time limit will only be considered at the Tribunal’s discretion. It is therefore important that firm’s act without delay if they wish to appeal a decision.
Succeeding at an appeal is reliant upon a well prepared case that demonstrates that the test set out in law for the regulator’s action has not been met.
